Abstract

Sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) and immunodiffusion method were used for the species differentiation of yeasts, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Candida utils, Candida tropicalis, and Kleuyveromyces fragilis. Comparing the electrophoretic patterns of soluble and membrane proteins, Saccharomyces cereνisiae was similar to Candida utilis but was different from Candida tropicalis and Kleuyveromyces fragilis. In immunochemical properties of soluble proteins, Saccharomyces cerevisiae was almost identical with Candido utilis. However, Saccharomyces cerevisiae or Candida utilis was quite different from Candida tropicalis and Kleuyveromyces fragilis in their immunoreactivities. In immunochemical properties of membrane proteins, almost the same results were obtained irrespective of four yeast species. By using SDS-PAGE and immunodiffusion methods, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Candida utilis were difficult to differentiate but both species were easily differentiated from Candida tropicalis and Kleuyveromyces fragilis.
